Dialysis Units in Dublin

“Is there any progress on the tender for the four satellite renal dialysis units from late 2012? Two were Northside and two Southside of Dublin City?”

Cllr. Bill Tormey

Response:

The Heath Service Executive’s (HSE) target date of Quarter 4, 2012 to have the four Dublin Contracted Satellite Renal Dialysis Units up and running i.e. Two Contracted Dialysis Units on the Dublin Northside and environs and two Contracted Dialysis Units on the South Side of Dublin has been adversely impacted upon by a legal challenge by private dialysis providers to the tender award for the Contracted Satellite services in Dublin and Dublin North East.

The Commercial Court Case finished on 30th November 2012 and the HSE is currently waiting a judgement in the case.
